Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Very up-to-date . . . The index, the illustrations, the bibliography and the tables make this book an excellent reference tool." La Croix.

"The range of recent revisions, particularly chronological, and the ever increasing amount of archaeological material demanded a new synthesis. Here it is, both lively and well written." Le Quotidien de Paris.

From Barnes & Noble
Egyptology is still a relatively young historical discipline, having only begun in earnest 150 years ago. Fortunately we have developed in that short time remarkable tools of research that have shed light on many aspects of pharaonic culture--from the complexities of dynastic succession to the establishment of monotheism and the perennial conflict between Egypt and Nubia. Drawing on recent archaeological, scientific, and linguistic discoveries, this book captures the drama and spirit of the great ancient Egyptian civilization, recounting its political, cultural, and economic history to the conquest of Alexander the Great.
